Children of the Corn (remake)
We have a bumper crop of DVD and Blu-ray releases this week what with Trick 'r Treat FINALLY coming home along with Ghost House Pictures' four-pack of The Thaw, Offspring, Seventh Moon, and The Children. And that's just the beginning!
The Children of the Corn franchise really does have supernatural powers. It must. They just keep making these flicks - no matter how badly they do or how dismal they are. Which brings us to the remake that's just about ready to make its debut on SyFy.
It’s been a bit since much has been said about the upcoming remake of Children of the Corn, quite possibly the last in the line of Stephen King books that needed another filmed version of it.
Donald Borcher's Children of the Corn remake (can we really call movies based on book remakes?) is currently rolling in Iowa, but news on who's appearing in the film has been slow. Preston Bailey and Daniel Newman are playing Isaac and Malachai, but where are the adults?
Daniel Newman may be playing Malachai, but who is going to lead the army of children in the onslaught against the adults? Why ... it's little Cody!
A remake of the 1984 original, though this time we're promised the film will stick closer to Stephen King's original short than the first one did.

Seems the upcoming Children of the Corn remake, which started rolling in Iowa this week, has found itself a Malachai in the form of Cirque du Freak actor Daniel Newman, according to STYD this morning.
Looks like He Who Walks Behind the Rows is preparing to make a return to trip to Iowa’s Quad Cities. A reader threw us a heads-up that the Quad City Times has a new article up about the Children of the Corn remake that’s set to go in front of cameras next month.
